Powerful, leather-clad challenger
With its lightning quick processor, big and bright display, and 16-megapixel camera that can shoot both JPEG and raw file formats, it is easy to see how the LG G4 is a stellar device. It is also an enjoyable device to use thanks to its interface’s welcomed facelift.
The new G4 is certainly dressed to impress in a shell of real, proper, made-from-the-skin-of-dead-animals leather. If that is not to your taste (or within your budget) there is a cheaper plastic/ceramic version.
The device is equipped with Qualcomm’s 64-bit, hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, which has a clock speed of 1.8GHz, a 3,000mAh removable battery and 3GB of RAM. You will also get NFC support that works in conjunction with services such as the digital payment platform Google Wallet, 32GB of onboard storage and a microSD card slot that can hold up to 2TB.
On the back is a 16-megapixel camera and for your selfie and video chatting needs, the phone’s front-facing camera comes with a 8 megapixels.
The LG G4 is an excellent big-screen smartphone that will appeal to budding photographers with old-school features missing from rival flagships.
